User settings in Purchase Order.

Hi,

I am trying to do some user settings in PO.

When I go to t.code ME21N and click on Default values - > More field.

I changed the positions of Plant and Storage location as per my requiremnt and Save it. But that is not happening, when I go back and see the settings, I get the original setting.

Why do it gets restored to the original setting.

Please help me how to do the default settings.

Thanks and regrads,

Sheetal

    Even if you Set Default Plant & Stor Locn in Personal Settings The System will take the Reference Document Plant & Stor Locn.

    That is, If you are Creating Purchase Order with Reference to Some Other Document for Eg : PR then System will Default PR Values in to PO ME21N.

    If you want Your Default Values whcih you have set in Personal Settings come into PO then go to Personal Setting and Give Plant & Storage Location and Put Tick Mark aginst Always Propose Options.

    Always Propose

    Causes the system to adopt the default values maintained in the Personal Settings in the purchase order that is to be created.

    Use

    If you set the indicator, the default values maintained here are adopted in the new purchase order even if the system might be able to determine other default values (e.g. from a reference document). That is to say, the values maintained here take priority.

    If you do not set the indicator but have maintained default values in your Personal Settings, these values are considered only if the system cannot determine any other default values (e.g. from a reference document, contract, info record etc.)

    Read F1 Help on Always Propose for Clarifications.

    If you want to change the column positions, don't try to do it from user defaults.

    You will find an icon of "Table control" in the top right corener of the item overview section of the ME21N transaction.

    First drag and drop the columns in their desired position. Then click on that aforesaid icon and create a variant. Then Save. don't forget to mark this variant as default.

    Next time the transaction opens, you will get your desired order of columns.
